  2. 8.0 |   music OMH

    As musically un-diverse as it may be, how cynical and jaded you would have to be to take against it. Tennis’ music is not intended to push at vanguards, but to make you happy

  3. 7.6 |   Paste Magazine

    These songs are tentative resolutions to whatever frustration, fight or difficult period falls upon two individuals essentially sharing a life, even if that detente only as far as the next daybreak

  4. 7.5 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Throughout Yours Conditionally, the interplay between Moore’s chords and Patrick Riley’s thick, knotty bass lines is always wonderful

    Highlights Moore’s now-seasoned songwriting and assured, soulful vocals

  11. 6.7 |   Gig Soup

    These biting lyrical musings seem lost at sea in a quiet storm of smoky guitars and flatlined synths

  14. 6.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    While the artistic vision of Tennis has hit its stride, the music itself is a little adrift on Yours Conditionally

  15. 6.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    Many of these tracks still are dream-pop, with the softly shimmering melodies on ‘Fields Of Blue’ being the sonic equivalent of a soft focus 70’s photo
